I've been too busy to make anything food-porn worthy recently, so these will have to do for now.

Fantastic! Hooray for the new camera! I'm hoping that whatever digital camera I decide on (probably January) does great in low light conditions, too.

Thanks, I've been impressed with the low light capabilities of the D70.

Nice!

Вспомнилась фраза из песни группы Несчастный Случай: "Каждый вечер гремит салют в честь салюта, что был вчера".

If you get the chance, I'd be interested in seeing some full-sized crops of one or two of these. They look great from here.

All of the photographs open full size in a new window if you click on them. :)

or rather, 1000 x 664.. the originals are immense.

Yeah. I'd just like to see a full-sized chunk of one of the originals, with both light and dark in it. Curious if there's noise, what it looks like, etc. No big deal, though.

Wow, that's really impressive, certainly shows up the quality of your new camera and pisses all over my attempts a few years back. Where's the display? Reminds me of the ones they used to do at Twickenham Rugby Ground - could it be?

I was trying not to jump for joy while using the camera during the fireworks, it was such a pleasure to use and really try out it's low light capabilities. Then I tried a few continuous shots and couldn't contain myself (it writes as fast as it shoots giving around 144 continuous shots at 3 FPS).

We saw the fireworks at the Kingsmeadow athletic grounds in Kingston, but as we walked home we saw several other major displays going off in all directions (and several more on Saturday!)

Ah, right. It was the funfair bits that made me think of Twickenham.

I was thinking about your reply to me yesterday (was it yesterday? Or the day before). I keep remembering more and more reasons why I dislike my Sony. You just reminded me of another - the time required to take a shot (and then line up another one) - I'm lucky if I can manage less than about 5 seconds between frames. Other big nags: it's LCD display only (which is useless in any kind of sunlight), it suffers from lens-droop unless I have two hands to support it, it doesn't have a very wide range of depth of field, so I can't do nice foreground in focus/background out of focus shots, it lacks a lot of the other software and interface gizmos you'd get on a more modern camera (like spot focusing), and it's too damn big to be a quick point-and-click-before-they-notice-you camera but too outmoded to be a big-and-bulky-and-technically-impressive camera. But other than that, I love it.

(Oh, and the bright colours are mostly the result of cheating)

Hi - these are stunning images
hi nomi --

I followed a link from celie's journal. (I've followed her photography on fotolog for past year or more - my own fotolog ID is http://www.fotolog.net/trimtab )

Really beautiful images here.

Context is everything. I hit reply seeing only the top image here --- and with the caption Bonfire Night, I misread the shot totally...

It's a stunning composition regardless, but I misinterpreted it as an ethereal bird's eye view of a pretty unusual phenomenon near New Orleans, USA on Christmas eve. (NOTE TO SELF: Dec 1 is 3 weeks prior to Christmas Eve. Remember for future reference)

I live in San Francisco but New Orleans is where I was born & raised... and there is, in Louisiana, a large culture of "Acadians" originally fromm Canada... but better known as Cajuns. And there is a Cajun Christmas Eve tradition where for miles and miles there are bonfires lit on both sides of the bayou to light up the way for Santa and his rheindeer. And your image evoked that for me in some kind of dreamy multiple exposure. But alas, no, totallly not it... but i'll keep it in my imagination.

I'm new to live journal and really just stopped in to see what celie was up to... she's always been 'ms. modest' re her photography -- when she knows she's damn good. :)

so hello from San Francisco
